(CNN) - If you are pregnant and use any form of cannabis product, you may want to consider stopping.
A new study found a significant health impact of marijuana use on fetal development as early as the beginning of pregnancy.
According to the study, published Tuesday in the journal Frontiers in Pediatrics, marijuana use can harm fetal development in the first trimester before many women even know they’re pregnant.
A decrease in birth weight is one of the main concerns, which is often linked to other problems like emotional issues and developmental delays.
